Re: Hunter 420 for a live aboard?

while the boats, many of them, are marketed as having a bath tub...the tub on my 42 is not much larger than a 5 gallon bucket at the base, it then opens up to a small flat spot, seat if I could go so far...and if you are over 150 pounds, there is no way you could get up and down or use it as a "tub".....

the shower is decent, as is the one in the salon head.

on my 42, the handling in reverse, in anything but dead calm was like riding a basket just never know where the other end is going to go...any amount of wind or current would blow the bow off the line you are trying to take. Bow in, no problem ever..

As to the differences, not sure....I would look at a bunch of both and see which were more to your likings. I sold my 1991 this past fall...
